If you have a chronic illness of any kind, you want to listen to this show. On this show, Dr. Naeem will talk about the power of the mind to heal. You see, the mind is amazing, and when it comes to your health, it is powerful. For example, often, if a physician tells someone they have a certain amount of time to live, and they accept it they may die almost to the day of the prediction. Further, if the doctor tells the patient they need to take a pill to get better, it is pretty sure the pill will have some effect, even it is sugar.
Patients with a chronic illness are too often led to believe that they will just have to accept their diagnosis. Also, Medical professionals tell them their health will never improve—after all, that’s what makes their condition chronic. Instead, they will have to learn to manage painful and debilitating symptoms.
Dr. Nauman Naeem’s new book Healing From the Inside Out challenges the common narrative of chronic illness. We will talk to him about how it is possible to overcome chronic disease and change your life.
